One of the main reasons we promote a career in the electrical industry for young people is because they can earn money while they learn the trade, ultimately avoiding college and college debt all together. This remains true for electricians and technicians, however it is a different story for our NECA contractor base. When a contractor is looking for their next estimator, project manager, or designer, they often turn to colleges and universities. And one of the best places for doing this, anywhere in the country, is the NECA student chapter at Penn State University.
NECA has partnered with different universities across the country to provide students with hands-on learning experiences within the construction industry and steady job opportunities post-graduation.
